Hey, how's it going?
Oh, not so good?
Wait what, you need weekend plans?
Why didn't you say so! We've got you!
We're bringing you two killer in-store performances this weekend.
Strap your shoelaces tight and get ready for a raucous night of grungey punk rock with Greys! Coming all the way from our favorite neighbors to the north (Canada) Greys is touring on the release of their new album If Anything off of Buzz and Carpark Records and it kicks some serious butt. Self described as "loud rock" these guys sound like a mix between The Ramones and Wavves, putting a new-age twist on the classic punk rock sound with distorted guitars, shouting vocals, and catchy riffs that are sure to get you jumping all over the place.
Yellow Ostrich's latest release, Cosmos is different. Perhaps it’s the loss of band co-founder, Jon Natchez or maybe it’s the use of big name mixers and engineers. Regardless, I recall an interview with front-person, Alex Schaaf who asserted that if his records didn't sound different from one to the next - they probably weren't worth releasing at all. Word. The resulting collection of tracks (apparently inspired by spacehead extraordinaire, Carl Sagan) is often just as deep and nebulous as its subject matter. Hints of psychedelia butt against dark synths with lyrics that induce twice as many questions as they answer - the great unknown! Sure to be a stellar set.
